Impressive Wednesday Hodgepodge

Joyce asks the questions, and we provide the answers. See how others answered at From This Side of the Pond.

 1. What impresses you? 

Genuine kindness and thoughfulness.

2.  Where are you in your family birth order? Do you fit the stereotype of that particular slot? In what way?

I'm #8 out of 10 and the youngest girl. It's funny, but I told one of my sisters once that for some reason people just take care of me. I'm definitely one of the bratty younger siblings, but oddly enough, my 2 younger brothers are not. Maybe it's just being the youngest girl. 🙅

3. What motivates you more-a reward or a consequence? Elaborate. 

Definitely a reward. Even if it's just verbal praise, I'm all in.

4. May 14th is National Buttermilk Biscuit Day. Who thinks biscuits deserve their own day? Do you like biscuits? Make your own? Grab one for breakfast at a drive-through now and then? Which drive-through makes the one you like best? What do you like to put on a biscuit? What's your favorite food or dish that calls for buttermilk? 

Sometimes there's nothing like a good sausage biscuit from Burger King. Or a chicken biscuit from Chick-Fil-A. And you can't beat a good sausage & gravy biscuit.

My favorite food that calls for buttermilk is Irish Brown Bread. 

5. Are there any weddings on your summer calendar? What's your favorite part of a wedding/wedding reception? 

I was verbally invited to a wedding on May 18th by the bride. I told her that was a great day for a wedding...that is our anniversary. Other than that, nothing on the calendar.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

As I mentioned, the 18th would have been our 40th anniversary. I'm still trying to decide what I'm going to do; I think I  need to at least take a drive up to the mountains for the day. We were never big on celebrating on that day; we took some camping trips around that time of year but would usually just go to a local restaurant. I'll just have to see what plans unfold that day.


  1. Our 40th anniversary is this weekend, too. We married on May 19, 1984. We don't have any special plans this weekend but are going out to a really nice restaurant the next Saturday night. I'll be saying a prayer for you! I said that genuine acts of kindness are impressive to me, too! We were evidently thinking alike as we typed :-)

  2. My first time having biscuits and gravy was in the cafeteria of our alma mater. I thought the woman was crazy asking me if I wanted gravy for breakfast. I was so wrong lol. Happy Anniversary Mary. I know it will be a day of mixed emotion, but I think a drive in the mountains sounds like a great idea.

  3. #8 out of 10? Wow, I can't even imagine what that would have been like growing up. I never see articles talking about birth order beyond, say, 4. Ha.

  4. I enjoyed reading your answers. I could go for some biscuits and gravy. May 18th is my daughters birthday. Hope you have a nice weekend.

  5. I enjoyed your answers. happy anniversary!

  6. Wow, you come from a pretty large family! I hope you had a good day on your anniversary - I can imagine it was a day of mixed emotions. Visiting the Hodgepodge late again this week!
